I was starving in the still of the night. I took out a Cup Noodle from the cabinet and filled the kettle with water.

sik lik sik lik sik lik sik lik

I stood in front of the pot and waited for the water to boil; the water sounded as if it had set the boundary between reality and imagination. During the boiling process, water changed from static to dynamic, liquid to gas. The narrow space was filled with the sounds of water in different states. The sounds  also brought me to various “places”.

gu lou gu lou
gu lou gu lou gu lou
gu lou gu lou gu lou gu lou

“Daap”, the steam came out from the pot. I was pulled back to the reality from the world inside the kettle.

夜闌人靜,肚子餓了。我在櫃子裡拿出杯麵,把水煲灌滿水。

淅瀝淅瀝淅瀝淅瀝。

我站在水煲前等待水滾,水聲彷彿為現實與幻想定下了邊界。這過程中,水由靜態轉為動態、由液體轉為氣態,狹窄的空間裡充斥著不同型態的水的聲音。同時,水聲亦帶我去了不同的「地方」。

咕噜咕噜。
咕噜咕噜咕噜。
咕噜咕噜咕噜咕噜。

「答」的一聲,煙從水煲冒出來,亦把我從水煲裡的世界拉出,回到現實。
